Any competent editor would have immediately sent this piece back to the writer. I understand you are both, so double the shame of it.
Your casual sexism is disgusting. At Greenleaf Music, the artist is 100% free to present themselves as they would like. Women have the right to represent themselves however they choose.

Or join the 21st century.
